EA clarify that not all future games will include micro-transactions


EA CFO Blake Jorgensen has now clarified at the Wedbush Technology Conference that not all future EA games will include micro-transactions, which apparently gamers perceived as all future games.

Polygon report [via CVG] that Jorgensen has now clarified that all EA mobile games will have micro-transactions in them, “because almost all of them are going to a world where they play for free.”

Using Battlefield Premium as an example, he says EA is examining ways in which it can offer product extensions through additional transactions.

“It allows someone to take a game that maybe they played for 1,000 hours and play it for 2,000 hours,” he said.

“We are very conscious that we don’t want to make consumers feel like they’re not getting value. We want to make sure consumers are getting value.”
